About Us

The Creative Computing Studio supports existing and emerging research into contemporary art, architecture and design practice with digital technologies. In particular, the Creative Computing Studio supports the conceptual and technical development of novel ICT systems for real-time 3D audio-visual human-computer interaction.

Applications of such capabilities include interactive creative arts (interactive performance environments, interactive installations, virtual reality applications), online and virtual pedagogy, collaborative research environments where participants can interact directly with data visualisations, computer gaming and multi-person communications where visually rich interactive data is a priority. The Creative Computing Studio works with partners across the University, such as Media Arts (School of Communications and International Languages) and the Advanced Computing Research Centre (School of Information Technology and Mathematical Sciences). The CCS is a founding partner of the Collaborative Embodied Movement Design Network, a project supported in part through the Australian Research Council's  Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities fund, including research partners in Austalia and internationally.
